with his party. when i was a city councilman in lyndhurst, ohio, i introduced the first property-tax rollback in the history of our city. we give tax relief to senior citizens and working families. i worked in a bipartisan fashion -- and we reconstructed the oversight to the workers' compensation investment fund. i worked in a bipartisan way to pass down the budget and try to keep young people in ohio. identified the exports with ohio and worked in a bipartisan way to manage the finances in the state of ohio where we have the highest rating on our bonds and investment and voluntarily cut our budget two years in a row. >> i would emphasize that he voted with his own party -- he voted with them 96% of the time. the only time he doesn't is if the interest group does not have a better offer. he voted against his leadership to satisfy the pay lenders and raised a lot of money. there is nothing in his elektra records that would show that he ever stands up to his political party on anything significant. >> is there one big area of disagreement you have with mitt romney, mandel? >> it is

of citizens, people like you, to do more to fill that void? or can you still fill the void -- is that city just out of luck? >> first of all, it is a remarkable symbol of what is happening to journalism. locally, the owners of the "union tribune" just purchased the "north county times" -- the assets are collapsing in value. they bought it for $12 million, sold his house for $18 million. putting aside that, these properties can be acquired and done with resume. this is not an expensive problem defects. i think that is an important thing to remember. i have a budget of a little more than $1 million, which is a lot for a person like me. for a cultural institution for an impact with the entire city, that is not that much. museums are run on a higher budget. university colleges, professors in universities are on a bigger budget. the point is that if we want to solve this and realize we want to have more coverage, there are ways to do that. we have setup a society that knows how to find institutions with that kind of impact. the "texas tribune," we inspired them -- now they inspire us with their

of the debate. >> congressman, thank you. we turn to the panel for their questions. we have the first question. your question goes to congressman akin. >> congressman akin, today the head of goldman sachs, bank of america, the city grew, and many other major financial institutions sent a letter urging the president and congress to avoid the looming tax hike and spending cuts that we call the fiscal cliff. which of your stated positions are you willing to compromise to break this budget gridlock? please be specific? >> where you are talking about is january 1, 2013. some people college taxmegeddon. there is a problem of the sequestration and the 10% cut to defense and a tax increase. all of these pose a lot of challenges. the solution of this has to be done in a couple of things. reduce the size of the federal government and get the private sector going. you cannot do just one or the other. the best thing to do is -- first, get the red tape under control. they are driving our business efficiency down and pulling jobs overseas. second, we got high unemployment, but we have the highest corporate

. he began his political career in 1989 as a city councilman. >> a few moments ago, we flipped a coin to see the order of how the questions would be asked to night. mr. mccoury won the coin toss. >> are first question is about the economy and unemployment. north carolina has one of the highest unemployment rates in the country. as governor, you cannot make law so realistically speaking, what can you do to fix this problem and what would you do in your first month? >> there are several things i would do -- i think north carolina has to get into the energy business. we have been sitting on the sideline for too long regarding natural gas exploration and offshore drilling while other states have moved quickly and those states have much lower unemployment. are contributing to -- they are contributing to energy independence. the second thing we need to do is reform our tax system and make it more competitive at least with our neighboring states. the third thing we must do is work on regulations. as i traveled the state, i am often told that regulations are strangling small businesses throug

at least. first of all, we had an event a couple days ago which i thought was not recorded here. a missile was shot from the strip to one of our cities in the south of israel. and it hits a children's kindergarten, but thankfully it was a night and there were no children there. mention this because, had this been sent in a day, and this missile hit a kindergarten with children in it, the number of fatalities would probably have been very high. this would have led to, in my opinion, to an immediate change in the situation, not only for israel and the gaza strip, but also in the entire area. it would have been a changer, not a money changer, a regional changer. am saying this because we are living in the situation here in the middle east where individual events can have enormous effect on the a whole range of issues. and as often in the hands of individuals to bring this about. this is the situation we are in. i will say by the way, in this respect, the fact that israel now has one means at its disposal, a system which was developed over years. in which we are able to at times detected these

200. every question is based on an idea from the public. elizabeth warren won the first coin toss. just last week, we saw the national unemployment numbers fall below 8%. millions of americans are still looking for jobs. things are especially difficult for minority cities. what will it take and what will you do if elected to support job growth? >> thank you very much. thank you for everyone for being so hospitable. i am glad to be here, and i am glad you started with jobs. we have nearly 200,000 people unemployed in massachusetts. there are higher unemployment rates here in springfield. it is a serious problem. i look at this as a short-term and long-term problem. short-term, they should put people back to work. i was surprised when senator brown of voted against a three in a row that would have supported 22,000 jobs here in the commonwealth of massachusetts, would have prevented layouts, and police officers, it would have put construction workers back to work. why? it would have been an increase in taxes, not for most people, but for those who make a million dollars or more. maki
